Handmade Tile

I love a good before and after! Scroll down to see this fireplace before the re-do. Feature tiles are glazed in "autumn." Not sure which company made those lovely field tiles, but I like them.  Such an improvement from the "before:" Thank you S.T. for including my tiles in your project and for taking the time to share photos!

These photos came from a woman who discovered a passion for woodworking in retirement. All three of these pieces look like heirlooms to me. So honored she chose to make my tiles part of them! (She asked to remain anonymous since she doesn't sell any of her work.) Thank you so much, H. for sharing these photos!

We are officially done with 2020, and I don't think anyone is sad to see it end. Thank you all so much for your amazing support during a very challenging year. I am unbelievably fortunate that I was able to stay healthy and employed all year, and connect with so many great people through my work. Really, I can't thank you all enough. I am taking today (mostly) off since it is a holiday, but here are some scenes from my studio from yesterday, the last day of 2020. Above: Tiles drying, and tiles ready to come out of the kiln.  These...

Doesn't this kitchen seem inviting? It's in a log cabin in the Northeast.  Over the stove, there are two six by six inch "Birds on a Branch" tiles surrounded by two by two inch tiles featuring various plants and animals.  Normally "birds on a branch" is a three tile set; I like how the homeowners mixed it up by making it shorter and adding an assortment of two by twos. Here is a close up of the smaller tiles before they were installed: The woman who lives in this house told me that her father, a second generation tile setter,...

Here is a little secret: a lot of the time I think my customers are more creative than I am. They always manage to install my tiles in new and wonderful ways that I never would have thought of! Take this installation, for example: The homeowners wanted their sophisticated new kitchen to have some earthy, arty, one-of-a-kind features that reflect who they are as people. They came up with the idea to inlay a grouping of art tiles behind the sink. Each tile represents a plant or animal that has meaning in their lives. And because they are fellow Ohioans,...

The tiles in this installation shipped several years ago. I remember this specific order because I thought the tiles came out so nicely that I took a picture and had it printed on promotional postcards which I send out with other tile orders. Since I see the picture of these tiles frequently, I often wondered where they ended up. My curiosity was satisfied last night when these remarkable pictures arrived in my inbox. The homeowners designed and built this staircase themselves, with help from Community Builders of Cedarville, Ca. They also installed tiles on the risers! The lighter colored field tiles...
